  • Export an existing certificate from either IIS or Apache server
  • Create a brand new certificate and have a CA sign it.

Enable Two-Factor Authentication

Hackers are always looking to crack passwords and gain access to otherwise protected data. Two-factor authentication (2FA) offers additional security besides a user id/password and keeps unauthorized users away.

Encourage your users to use 2FA. Administrators could also make using this feature mandatory. Click here for details.
